  • Effects of Low-Carbohydrate and Low-Fat Diets: A Randomized Trial. Lydia A. Bazzano et al. Ann Intern Med. 2014;161(5):309-318. doi:10.7326/M14-0180 [See]
  • Shin and colleagues at Baylor University and Harvard analyzed the health and diet of nearly 11,000 adults in South Korea between ages 19 and 64.
